10 Hygiea is a Main Belt asteroid discovered by Annibale de Gasparis on April 12, 1849. It is the fourth-largest object in the region by volume and mass, and the largest of the class of dark C-type asteroids with a carbonaceous surface.

This is the busiest asteroid in the Main Belt, thanks to the Wizards choosing it as the home for their main facility, Hogsmeade, and their main school, Hogwarts.
